This week’s Art 110 activity consisted of going to the website “Kickstarter” to take a look at how people fund their ideas they want to create. The activity was to search through two areas of projects that I thought were interesting, and to choose one video that I really liked from each category and one video that didn’t really appeal to me or didn’t explain their idea well enough. The two categories that I choose were food and technology because those categories play very big roles in my life and they are very interesting to learn more about. After searching around for a while, I found some ideas that I would personally fund and some ideas that I thought would not last long.
In the first area: food, an idea that I really liked and hope they grow is “Green Pea Cookie.” They are a group of three people who bake cookies in their house, for the moment, out of green peas. At first, I thought that making cookies from green peas would taste nasty, but the video showed the creators walking around, handing out free samples, and everyone saying how good they are because they are both salty and sweet. Their video was well put together and they definitely sold me on their idea. The idea that I didn’t really care for was “Traveling Bevz.” It was created by a women who likes to make healthy beverages, that sometimes includes chocolate, and she wants to be able to travel and provide her drinks for companies. I didn’t really like her idea because their are so many places that already make drinks that she described, and people are easily able to make these types of beverages too because they are practically smoothies. I believe Green Pea Cookie can be a big success and Traveling Bevz will fail quickly.
